Some random items: Clouds on Mars, telescopes on Earth, missions to the Moon
It's been one of those Mondays in which I've been working all day (well, except for a lunchtime shopping trip) but have finished almost nothing, so, with my apologies for a rather light post I'll share just a few interesting items
The first is this lovely animation, taken by an apparently daydreaming Opportunity rover, of cirrus clouds drifting across the sky...

Clouds over Victoria
Opportunity turned its rover eyes skyward to observe clouds drifting overhead in March, much like it has throughout the mission. The clouds it captured here passing over Victoria Crater look like cirrus clouds on Earth, featherlike formations composed mostly of ice crystals.
